    Long time no see!

    The DK1 is dirt cheap these days, is it even worth considering for games like Project Cars 2 and Dirt Rally?

    The DK1's resolution kinda sucks and a bunch of the bugs that got fixed with the DK2 and subsequently the CV1 offers better immersion as a result.

    The Vive is dirt cheap these days. Get that instead.

    Is it super noticeable? I don't have a super high-end rig either so the lower resolution was sort of an attraction haha.

    Hmm, not too much I guess. The DK1 is like $50, haha.

    Yes. It was the number 1 complaint on the DK1.

    Compared to the $850 I paid at launch it's dirt cheap.

    Yea... prices have been dropping for the Vive simply because the Vive Pro came out. The Vive Pro is for sure on my list of items to get at one point. It suits the games I play perfectly.

    Cheers for the replies! Just a quick update; I ended up picking up a HP Windows Mixed Reality headset and it's superb! 1440p per eye and in-side-out tracking, so no fiddly setup or mess. Very happy with it!
